EMISSIONS CONTROL CERAMIC PRODUCTION AND FINISHING LINES
airprotech has supplied a complete and advanced system for the abatement of emissions of volatile organic compounds VOC generated by the processes of production and digital printing of ceramics.
3 different systems have been installed, one for each specific type of production, adopting the best available technology that involves the use of regenerative thermal oxidizers to eliminate the pollutants.
The processes of production and finishing through digital printing of ceramics and tiles involve the use of special paints containing organic-type materials, these substances evaporate on passing through the furnaces and must be treated before sending the exhaust gases into the atmosphere.
